    Viking Pirates of the Caribbean

    Edge of the World

    [​IMG]

    They kill our German brothers in faith without mercy, slaughtering women and children in the name of their God. They likewise exterminate entire tribes of skraelings for their God, doing acts of cruelty and dishonor without equal, bringing the wealth of the New World to the Old where it funds new acts of brutality and persecution against the Norse.

    Let them fear again the sight of ships with dragon figureheads, now much larger, faster and stronger than the old longships, Galleons and frigates intent to return to Odinhóll full of gold, silver or spices removed from the inventory of the empires under the false gods. The Second Viking Age has begun!

    [​IMG]

    From Grótti they sailed west to the subjugated lands of the Aztlan, looting many Castillan ships bringing great wealth, but unfortunately failing to intercept the famous and heavily escorted treasure ships.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The legalization of piracy motivated the colonization of the remaining islands of the Caribbean and as far to the south as to cold islands near Patagonia, used as bases for pirate ships to dock into and launch their attacks against Portuguese, Granadan and Castillan shipments, and strategically located in the middle of important naval routes.

    [​IMG]

    A development made even better because those "pirate" islands themselves were ripe with valuable resources and fertile soil.

    [​IMG]

    Almost every year was an year of the Republic getting cuts from her corsairs, and the ones who find shelter in the Church have learned to fear the Vikings again. A covert war waged, covert because the reputation of success of Vinland in their previous wars and of the naval victory they achieved made their primary targets, who happened to fear being severely weakened and then conquered by their rivals in Iberia, less than willing to retaliate in open war against Vinland.

    [​IMG]

    Sometimes the privateers brought headaches, but nothing too serious.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The first Galleon of Vinland was named after their first proper admiral who finally crossed the bifrost, a man who achieved victory against a clearly superior navy, and even when most of his fleet was annihilated, even as his flagship was just a few more shots from sinking, did not give up the battle.

    :salute:

    [​IMG]

    Vinland becomes more and more leaning towards respecting wealth from trade and industry over landed privilege and birthright traditions. It is a move that may cause friction to certain interest groups, but a necessary one for it is from trade that their country has become the greatest power of the New World.

    [​IMG]

    In the Baldur Island, an even greater source of wealth was found out: rich deposits of silver began to be mined from it. The colonization of the Caribbean was trully a good idea, for from it only great plantations were created such as indigo, coffee, tobacco sugar and better. Some in the Althing suggested it was about time to forge a truly overseas empire.

    [​IMG]

    The Holy Roman Empire, victorious against Nordland, now faces the wrath of Odin, Perkele and Perkunas combined. This time Vinland can do something to support them and also make a side profit: while their reinforced Navy made of one Galleon, three Naus, two Barques and six Flytes prepares to blockade Oldenburg and Bremen, some privateers to sail to the New World as well to make their profit from this war by looting the Norse Order and other zealots' coffers.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    With the colonization of the Tollak Islands in the far south, the first truly overseas territory of Vinland came to existence, and from such happening finally came the time to choose a colonial policy. Considering the importance of commerce to the Republic, it was a no-brainer with little controversy.

    [​IMG]

    A refuge for those who seek freedom of religion always open to the victims of the Catholic and Protestant zealots. That is Vinland, the last bastion of free Norsemen in the world.

    [​IMG]

    WHERE IS YOUR GOD NOW?

    [​IMG]

    The legalization of piracy brought a clear message to the enemies of Vinland: that they have free reign to retribute in the same coin. Privateers and pirates roamed around the immensely rich center of trade in Odinhóll, which have surpassed even Venice and the centers of trade of the other colonial powers in the New World in the volume of transactions within it. But with time pirate hunters are starting to put them down and restore safety to the coast around the capital.

    [​IMG]

    :kfc:

    There was one more way to go to besides westward deeper and deeper inland in Vinland. It was inevitable since the first slave traders arrived to Odinhóll that the fields of tobacco would become mostly worked at by the thralls they sold to the farmers of Vinland. Sailors charted a land filled with a large quantity of such "people" they could enslave on their own and cut costs drastically. These "people", if they could be called that, behaved more like monkeys than like human beings. They were called the Svertingar, also known as niggers or spear chucking Cro-Mags without the same massive degree of Neanderthal Admixture the Germanic and Scandinavian peoples have.

    :M

    [​IMG]

    As rebels conquered Oldenburg, the "Navy" of the Norse Order tried to make a run for it. They failed disastrously, and now Vinland got an extra flyte as a transport ship for free.

    [​IMG]

    The rest of the Holy Roman Empire at war with Sweden had no sea provinces, and thus the Navy of Vinland made their way back to the New World with their prize.

    [​IMG]

    At the same age, Vinland became the foremost world producer of cigars and raw tobacco.

    [​IMG]

    Yet deeper inland, new tobacco plantations are made, raising concerns about the thralls. But the contracts make it very clear: if for any reason an owner decides to free his thralls, he is obliged to return them and all their offspring to their precious Africa, and likewise, such idea would reign even among future abolitionists who wanted no more slavery and no more niggers at the same time.

    [​IMG]

    After several failed expeditions slaughtered by machete wielding savages, finally Vinland succeeded at having their first steps towards the colonization of Africa in March of 1615.

    Note: Couldn't resist changing that province name to 'Kwa'.

    [​IMG]

    Mats Amundsen assumes the government as the New Consul, as he predecessor, Njald Torgeirsson, died of old age, leaving a legacy of victory and progress. Mats is a truly superb diplomat and a great administrator, but a mediocre general.

    [​IMG]

    The colonial ventures in Africa prove themselves extremely profitable. Ivory from elephants is an incredibly valuable material, almost as good as gold and gems. And even in those provinces in there with less valuable goods, slavery can always bring a hefty profit.

    [​IMG]

    Unfortunately the expansion of Vinland both westward in their own continent and overseas began to put the government capabilities to their limit again. The country has grown much larger than it has ever been since Mass Colonization and Exploration policies were adopted, and as such it would demand much more to be efficiently administrated. Yet, the journey through the savage west beyond even the lands of the Chiksa tribes would not stop. Land explorers marched with a small force inland.

    [​IMG]

    Where they found the lands of the Ugakspa, as these skraelings called their people, something discovered from prisoners after their fight against such savages which attacked without any provocation. Merciful and even-handed, the explorers released the prisoners. The general policy of the Republic has been to attempt to secure the friendship of the natives first, and only seek their annihilation or subjugation if they react violently to their settlements. More often than not, this policy worked, encouraging cultural assimilation as natives went to the cities to trade, although the savages can be very erratic at times, specially when they, unlike the civilized natives around Vinland, never had prior contact to the plagues.

    [​IMG]

    In the City of Tangi (Tangi means Cape in Norsker) and surrounding region there was only poor and cheap millet. It was no surprise the decision to transform the region into the first slave market of the Republic, the port from where they were sent to the plantations of the Caribbean and of Southern Vinland to toil, some even exported to other countries.

    [​IMG]

    The niggers of Europe, according to butthurt Anglo-Saxon propaganda, also enslave the niggers of Africa, as Irish slave traders set their businesses in Central Africa.

    [​IMG]

    Uncles Tom pick up cotton in Ugakspaland. A very iconic representation of Southern Vinland during the times of the Slave-based economy. Although not yet, in time, their geographical division because of the civilized Wyandot and Lenape lands between the southern and northern portions of Vinland would give rise to two noticeably different cultures.

    [​IMG]

    Definitively not a good idea. However, there is one truth: the Eldritch followers ruled by Vinland bring enormous wealth to the Republic, making the government very reluctant to purge the lands once controlled by the Dagonl'nu because of pragmatic reasons. But how long would this go on without terrible consequences?

    Note: I really need to create some special events to dissuade a player from not using the exclusive "Hunt and Exterminate Eldritch cultists" religious decision, events that happen if you have any province with Eldritch as a majority religion but is not playing with an Eldritch country. On the other hand I will have to carefully balance them so not trying to rid those provinces of the Eldritch Faith is bad, but there is a long enough grace period for conquering them to not be more harmful than good. The next update will feature them.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    21st of November of 1627 was one of the greatest days in the history of the New Viking Age. A Castillan ship filled with gold from Mexico was successfully boarded and seized by the Norsker corsair Gunnar Gunnarsson, also known as Goldenbeard for his long blonde beard. The Viking Pirates of his crew fought with him in a way that could only be explained as a berserkergang, something pirates who are not Vikings obviously cannot have. They slaughtered the Castillan sailors and seized the Galleon and several others filled with gold, silver, gems and spices. The entire fleet escorting it was either defeated or evaded by the bold crew and fleet of Gunnar, whose name was inscribed in History for his great deed every pirate dreams of achieving one day. And of course, he honorably paid the cut he owed to the Republic for giving him support, safe havens and the Letter of Marque.

    [​IMG]

    When everything is doing well, superior peoples do not waste their fortune in distractions and delusions, but rather allow it to flourish into even greater prosperity.

    [​IMG]

    After colonizing the Regnbogarvík, named as such for the large occurrence of rainbows in that region deep to the west, explorers found out just northwest of it the land grew extremely hostile into what could be a natural border, while to the west there is more and more land ripe for colonization, which may eventually lead to the West Coast of Vinland. The Althing began to discuss on the decisions to make for these discoveries, while down south in America another type of DISCUSS!!! was going on:

    [​IMG]

    For, as the Portuguese and Castillan called it, the Second Reconquista: The Brazilian Slaughter edition, has begun. With their colonists known as the Gauchos and "Vicentinos" from their exclave on the forefront of the fight against the dhimmitude and the religion of peace, Portugal advances to crush the Granadans both in Iberia, where they already lost some ground, and in the New World, where the Portuguese crown is determined to seize the Brazil they have long claimed for themselves at any cost.

    [​IMG]

    But that war to the South is not the real question for Vinland. No matter who wins, a potential enemy of the Republic will grow stronger. Instead, it is the question of whether to colonize the lands northwest of Regnbogarvík and close the inland within that border of permanent terra incognita due to its hostility, limiting the westward expansion of Vinland at the region called Vísundurland(Kansas) for its bisons and the natives who hunted such large animals. Or to go through the wild west until they reach the Pacific Ocean. What should Vinland do now?

    1) Stop westward expansion at the colonization of Vísundurland (Kansas) to close off the inland provinces for future European colonists

    2) Settle all the way to the West Coast, and eventually use it to explore the Far East in search of wealth and fame.

    3) Join the fray in South America by declaring war on Granada to take over a part of the lands of the HUEHUE for themselves, with all its gems and spices.

    4) Join the fray in South America by declaring war on Castille for the Colombian silver and plantations.

    And should Vinland take a more active stance against the enemies of the believers in the old gods, even when it brings no strategic benefit to them?

    A) No. Don't meddle in European affairs.

    B) Yes, but only to support their Swedish allies

    C) Yes and for a start, prepare an Invason against the Papal States to send them a message by burning Rome, destroying brick by brick every Church within.

    Note, if you want to vote for both 1 and 3, for example, mention both options in your post as obviously they aren't mutually exclusive.

    Imperator and Corporate Jew Master, what are your choices between expanding all the way to the west coast or stopping at Kansas and between not intervening over Europe, only intevening to support their Swedish allies or going in hard to try burning and sacking Rome?

    I'd say C, but it is far too early now. Gather shekels, recruit Hues and build up your strength.

    Then bring Ragnarok upon the manboons.

    So A for now.

    It was tough to interpret the votes, my own fault ultimately, but 1 - don't bother with the west coast, can't be beaten, doing 3 - invade BRanada unfortunately was cut short because that war ended like a few months after it began and fighting Granada on their own would be stupid and end with nothing for them. and considering JagreenLern voted for C, which is a vote for intervention, I considered it as a vote for B as well.

    Which means 1 and B won. I would have invaded Granada but the colonial war in South America was too short lasted for that.

    By the way, this update will have a seriously very important choice.

    ==========================

    [​IMG]

    Return of the Undefeatable

    Månegarm - Verdergällningens tid

    [​IMG]

    Some settlers in South Africa believed there could be diamonds there. Of course a prospecting expedition was funded, to hopefully located such valuable gems.

    [​IMG]

    Unfortunately, the possibility of an opportune war against Granada ended too soon, for the war was over without any territorial changes in the New World, but instead with Navarra-Aragón taking some territory from the Granadans, whose Navy was too much for Vinland right now, specially as their ability to expand their navy at reasonable maintenance costs was hindered by part of their naval capabilities being diverted to pirate hunter squadrons.

    [​IMG]

    What a shame. Those were good 300 ducats... what a rotten way to waste.

    [​IMG]

    In the end of 1633, Sweden called for Vinland's support to put a definite end to the Order of the Norse Knights of Christ, now a religious order only in name and a de facto monarchy. They answered such call to arms, but first, they needed a better and preferably cost-effective Navy. More than ten frigates were commissioned to be constructed in the shipwrights of the Republic.

    [​IMG]

    Vinland has grown so large and vast through colonization, and to a lesser extent, conquest, that its government began to slip away in its capability of ruling with competence. It was clear the establishment of a properly structured bureaucracy was important to allow the continued expansion into Africa and future colonization of the untamed countryside without a cost that is not worth enduring in a terribly inefficient government.

    [​IMG]

    The good results of the creation of such properly organized bureaucracy were almost immediate, solving the inefficiencies of the government for Vinland within its current territorial extent.

    [​IMG]

    As the new frigates began to rally into Odinhóll, one of them failed to arrive soon enough to not be intercepted by a small English fleet. The rest of the fleet sails south to rescue her.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The small British fleet is driven away, and the once lone frigate bravely held off in the days before the reinforcements arrival despite severely outnumbered.

    [​IMG]

    The war against the Norse Order was taking forever because of the failure by Sweden and Finland to achieve naval supremacy over the Straits of Denmark. Thus, the Norsker fleet takes a route through the cold northern seas, as close to the Arctic as possible to prevent engagement with the much larger English navy, and heads right into the Straits intent on securing the passage of Swedish and Finnish armies through the waters into København, and to crush the English fleet within the straits.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The English were outnumbered and were foolish and arrogant enough to have no assigned any real admiral to such a fleet, but they had more capital ships. Over Öresund, the war would be decided in this battle between Norsker and Anglo-Saxon.

    [​IMG]

    Not only it was a total, utter and crushing defeat for the English, but one of their Galleons was successfully boarded and seized by the brave marines of Vinland as well, clearing the straits for the advance of the allied troops into the Danish capital. The crews of the frigate and of the flyte who gave their lives for this victory shall be remembered.

    :salute:

    [​IMG]

    Unfortunately, they didn't manage to board an capture any more of the fleeing English Galleons.

    [​IMG]

    Mats Amundsen died, and in his place the even greater Alf Bolt was elected, whose competence was on a degree few Consuls of the past were able to match. Far from being merely a great administrator, Alf personally led six thousand men through a long journey to conquer Götland.

    [​IMG]

    There was no heroic defense within the island, soon their walls would collapse, and Alf's excellent logistical skills ensure the six thousand immortals were well supplied during the siege, preventing losses to attrition. They just had to wait and soon that blockaded island would fall.

    [​IMG]

    No surprise here.

    [​IMG]

    Threatened simultaneously by Poland, Lithuania and worst of all, the Ottoman Empire, the Holy Roman Empire grew more and more centralized, finally succeeding at the creation of the unified military force of their Empire.

    [​IMG]

    Across Vinland, many financial institutions exist. All of them are owned by Norskers, for no Jews exist in Vinland, at least not in an ethnic sense because the handful that once existed, unlike in most of the world, have been long culturally assimilated, and usury was never considered a sin. These financial institutions played a key role in the improvement of the economy and to have access to large loans.

    [​IMG]

    Six thousand English soldiers landed on Thorhóll. One thousand immortals support by five thousand horsemen armed with swords and pistols advanced and attacked them. Although many of the cavalry died during their salvo of musket fire, once the charge struck them hard, they were completely crushed, and had nowhere to run. Such would be only one of several English armies utterly vanquished in the New World, remembering the zealots why they should never dare to think about conquering Vinland.

    One year later, as the war dragged on and on without little result, Alf Bolt did the unthinkable, and led his six thousand men to the walls of København. Ignoring the heavy losses of the first assault, he insisted bravely to fight for the ramparts, having little chance of succeeding. But, while this assault did not breach through the walls of the blockaded Danish city, it breached through the morale and will of the Norse Order to continue fighting, and immediately they accepted peace in exchange of abandoning the Norse Oldenburg, once again free from the zealotry and tyranny of the Catholics.

    For the first time in history since Angartýr's legendary defense of Linköping, Vinland had a crucial role in bringing victory to those who believe in the gods across Europe. Their Navy defied the larger English Navy and crushed their isolated fleets. Their armies assaulted the gates of København without fear, and so at last this conflict was over, but not yet with a decisive Swedish victory that would at last unite Scandinavia.

    Hailed as a true example of honor and courage by Swedish and Norsker alike, Alf Bolt returned with his remaining five thousand men to Vinland, the distant country for most Europeans now gaining much more fame for their defiance against the mighty French and English military forces.

    [​IMG]

    While the prospections in already self-sufficient colonies were mostly unsuccessful, one of the new African colonies, the Greater Namakwansanía, was truly worth colonizing because it had an enormous wealth in diamonds, a wealth that would be of great use for the Republic.

    [​IMG]

    Odinhóll is no longer a city of little notice outside the New World. It is, other than the Eldritch abominations called cities and located beneath the waves, the largest city of the New World, with a population approaching one hundred thousand, and the greatest known center of trade of the world as well, having surpassed Venice by far in its volume of transactions. In 1641, a great harbor is built in the capital, to further support its immense importance as a center of trade and heart of Vinland.

    Everything was going well for Vinland as the half of this 17th century approached, even in the conquered lands of the Dagonl'nu, nothing out of ordinary ever happened, and patriot or nationalistic rebels were completely ordinary for any conquered land.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The Haunter of the Dark

    [​IMG]

    Finally the price of tolerating the Eldritch presence within Vinland began to arrive. Despite twisted and inhuman, the gods of the deep offer immediate and great rewards to all who follow them and serve their agenda of returning to Earth to subjugate mankind again. Again in their point of view, because their tale of mankind's creation is truly frightening as they believe mankind was created by the Great Old Ones as pathetic and insignificant slaves, but the stars no longer aligned and the Great Old Ones, which physical manifestation within this world is claimed to depend upon the astral alignment, fell asleep.

    The great rewards the eldritch gods offer and their presence not actively hunted within Vinland caused thousands in Innu to embrace them, confident they would find much more gold if they sang the unspeakable chants to Hydra, Dagon, Cthulhu and Nyarlathotep, the god of the Aymaras, who may be on the verge of subjugation, but the crawling chaos is completely indifferent to which insignificant ant is the queen, which will not matter if it ever fully comes back to Earth to crush man. A terrible crisis was sparked by these events, a wave of nightmares involving a sunken city and horrors beyond description. The Althing was completely caught by surprise when they realized how many of the people giving tribute to Odin were in truth only pretending and worshipped such dark gods in secret.

    [​IMG]

    As if the spread of Eldritch Cults was not enough, one year later niggers rose against the colony of Transkei. A single regiment was shipped to South Africa, because Alf Bolt wanted to subjugate rather than utterly exterminate them in Transkei, because anything larger would slaughter those seven thousand monkeys with crude stone machetes. Specially now that the first "firearm" of Vinland was developed. A design that would make Diogenes of Constantinople proud were him alive to day from how truly prosperous and ingenious this repeating crossbow was. Using a similar principle to that of newly invented phosphorous boxes and sticks, great creations from alchemists who had much more freedom of research in Vinland than in most of Europe, the fact they worked alone was unbelievable. These new firebows would have their first use in breaking the will of the machete savages.

    Note: Already fixed the "a unconventional" typo.

    [​IMG]

    Despite outnumbering the Vinland forces at 7:1, the savages were utterly and completely broken long before all of them were killed. Their once immense ferocity and aggressiveness became nothing when they realized their Cro-Mag powerlessness next to the superior Neanderthal Norsemen.

    [​IMG]

    As a side note, Britannia lost many African colonies to worst gyro... yes. Decades living in a completely Greek Constantinople too large to have that changed instead changed the Ottoman dynasty. Like many other foreign conquerors of Greece in the past, the Turkish rulers were Hellenized by the beginning of of the 17th Century, bringing them much more legitimacy over the conquered lands of Seleukeia, Armenia and Georgia, but causing some friction with the common kebab. And this made the vast Ottoman Empire even more powerful than it was before the Hellenization.

    Note: OE starts with a capital in Edirne rather than Constantinople. If they move to Constantinople they will have to choose between Hellenization or not, and AI always choose the former because it gives them cores all over Anatolia and Caucasus and because their most valuable provinces are of Greek culture. Again, the specific ubikebab cheats were deleted. They did that without nothing more than their naturally superior starting situation... and my mistake before starting this LP of not disabling the event that makes them insta-annex Seleukeia because it uses the same tag as Trebizond. But even with Seleukeia at their back door they will be a lot of trouble.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    It was spreading like a cancer, specially among the very poor who saw in embracing such vile gods one last chance to a life of luxury. The Cults to the Great Old Ones were so vast even the heart of Norse colonization of the New World, Leifsbúdir, was infested by a significant minority of them. The nightmares didn't stop over the year of 1642, they only worsened, and fear, chaos and despair were slowly dominating the streets.

    An emergency session was booked by the Althing, but it was Alf Bolt's choice that truly would define how to answer to this threat the defeat of the Dagonl'nu, far from putting an end to, only worsened, for now the Great Old Ones, seeing the weakness of their former followers, tried to corrupt those who conquered the Dagonl'nu to worship them, and it was far deeper than the recent events, for the shadows were equally casted over the highest throne and over the lowest gutter. There were both the rational and the unthinkable way to deal with this before Vinland collapses into chaos. How should this wave of chaos and expansion of Eldritch Cults be stopped?

    [​IMG]

    1) Suffer not the Cultist, the Mutant and the Xeno. PURGE THE UNCLEAN!

As a disclaimer, converting to Eldritch brings a modifier that will make crossing the infamy limit inevitable even with a DIP 9 ruler, but at the same time it will give intentionally absurd bonuses. I don't want to show it right now because that would be a spoiler to the rape potential Dagonl'nu still have in late game should option 1 win instead.

    1.

    Obviously. The other option would be appropriate for another kind of LP.
